How to Become a SAS® Certified Data Scientist

DATA CURATION • ADVANCED ANALYTICS
AI & MACHINE LEARNING

If you're interested in a data science career, our academy offers three professional-level credentials to boost your résumé. Earning one credential can launch a career – but a combination helps you earn a credential that could transform your future.

Certified-Level:

DATA CURATION

Gain a solid understanding of data management, Hadoop and other big data concepts. This credential is a good starting point if you're pursuing a data science certification because it's a required part of the series.

Certified-Level:

ADVANCED ANALYTICS

Expand your analytical skill set by learning the latest advanced analytics technologies, such as machine learning and predictive modeling. You'll gain the ability to solve critical business challenges across every domain – and, if you combine Advanced Analytics with Data Curation, you can earn a certification as a data scientist.

Certified-Level:

AI & MACHINE LEARNING

Learn how to analytically approach business problems while using a business case study to understand the analytical life cycle. This credential is valuable on its own – or you can combine it with Data Curation to qualify for a data science certification.

EARN YOUR DATA SCIENCE CERTIFICATION

Each of these credentials is valuable in itself. But earn a combination and you've put yourself on a path to a data science career. Start with Data Curation Professional, then take either Advanced Analytics or AI & Machine Learning Professional to complete the coursework.
